Activities to Enjoy at Ramadan Gatherings Instead of Staring at your Phones

Published

on

We all know how intensely boring Ramadan tends to get sometimes. You’re out at some Ramadan gathering with your friends or your family, yet it all becomes so plain and uninteresting in a matter of minutes. We want to help revive you all! So, we came up with a bunch of games and activities for you to enjoy doing with your loved ones. Let’s bring you back to life in 5 4 3 2 1:

1. Likes & Dislikes

Each player gets to small pieces of paper and a pen. On one paper, they write down something random and generic that they like, same with the other one but a dislike, this time. After everybody’s done writing down their likes and dislikes, you place all your folded tiny pieces of paper into a ball together. Then each player gets to pick a random paper from the ball and guess who it belongs to, and whether it is a like or a dislike for that person. 1 point for guessing the person right, 2 points for guessing the person and the the like or dislike right and 0 points for only guessing the like or dislike right.

2. Act & React

Each participant has to write down a random event on a single piece of paper, for example: “You just ran into into your ex who you haven’t seen in over 7 years, and you he/she tells you that they have kids now”. Then, as the previous game goes, you place all your papers in one bowl and pass them around for each person to randomly pick one. Whatever you get, you have to act out to the rest of the players while they try to make sense out of what you’re doing.

3. Secret Gift


Same idea as secret Santa but less fancy. Each one of you gets to pick another one of you and present them with a gift. You don’t even need to go out and buy a gift, you just rummage in your old stuff, pick a gadget, whatever it may be but you have to wrap it really well. Make it look pretty. Used shavers and expired products aren’t allowed, tho because that’s just disgusting and unhygienic.

4. Seven Minutes in Hell

Just like Seven Minutes in Heaven, but without getting touchy. You spin a bottle and the two lucky ones the bottle picks have to stare into each other’s eyes for seven long minutes without uttering a word.

5. Two Truths & a Lie

You go in turns as each one of you has to come up with two facts about themselves and slide a lie in there, as well. The other players must detect the lie. Don’t go easy on each other!
